KIDS VOTING BROWARD: “PREPARING YOUNG PEOPLE TO BE EDUCATED VOTERS”?!?!?


This is a press release from BROWARD COUNTY SCHOOLS:

“If the online votes cast by 27,300 Broward students had determined the outcome of Tuesday’s election, the results would have been quite different.
The students had an opportunity to cast votes from school or home via on an online system created by the School District.  The online voting program is part of a partnership between the District and the Kids Voting Broward, Inc., an organization working to secure the future of democracy by preparing young people to be educated voters.
Here is a sampling of the vote results:
United States Senator
Charlie Crist  (NPA)    29%
Kendrick Meek  (D)      25%
Marco Rubio  (R)        14%
Other                   32%
Florida Governor
Alex Sink  (D)          38%
Rick Scott (R)          28%
Other                   34%
Interest Survey: Elementary Only
Should we have healthier lunches in school?
Yes  65%   No  35%
Interest Survey: Middle School Only
Should more high school credits be offered?
Yes  81%   No  19%
Should we promote hands on teaching?
Yes  78%  No  22%
Interest Survey: High School Only
Should students use online textbooks instead of traditional paper copy textbooks?
Yes  29%  No 71%
Should we run our schools on clean energy and renewable resources?
Yes  90%  No 10%
Should we implement a 4-day school week?
Yes  69%  No  31%”
Ummm. What happened to civics lessons? What happened to teaching the electoral process? It looks likes KIDS VOTING BROWARD is “educating” kids how to vote on certain issues. Isn’t that the job of parents? Shouldn’t mom and dad talk about renewable energy and hands on teaching and online textbooks? Doesn’t sound like someone is pushing an agenda?
